Meta, Microsoft, and 31 other companies have teamed up to form an organization to promote open standards for Metaverse technology. The institution, called the Metaverse Standards Forum, will focus on setting standards to make each of the Internet’s metaverses functional, which would ideally allow these worlds to communicate.
Birth of the Metaverse Standard Forum
Although the metaverse is a vague concept that each company interprets and builds on its own, some consider it important to connect these separate worlds. That’s why Meta, Microsoft, and other companies like Epic games have come together to found the Metaverse Standards Forum, an organization created to promote the interoperability of these metaverses.
According to launch PR statement:
[The body] will focus on pragmatic, action-based projects such as implementation prototyping, hackathons, plugfests, and open source tools to accelerate testing and adoption of metaverse standards, and develop consistent terminology and deployment guidelines.
The Forum will not create standards on its own. The organization will act as a hub for bringing together various standards development organizations (SDOs) in areas such as virtual reality, graphics and interaction, among others.
The creation of such a group is seen by some as a statement of consensus within these companies about the importance of creating open standards for the concept of the metaverse. This was stated by Neil Trevett, president of Khronos, an organization that is part of the group:
The Metaverse will bring together various technologies that require a set of interoperability standards created and maintained by many standards organizations.
Some Important Absences
Although the group claims to be an open organization, available to all interested groups free of charge, there are some big names that have not been featured in the group. Apple, one of the largest technology companies in the world interested in VR and AR (augmented reality) technologies, has not yet joined the forum. Other important game metaverses like Roblox have yet to join.
According to some experts, this shows that even with an organization advancing standards on the subject, standardizing the metaverse, or the group of worlds that make up the metaverse, will be a difficult task, given the diversity of companies that create platforms focused on it. .
